Performing Arts Østfold

Performing Arts Østfold (Norwegian: Scenekunst Østfold) is a county-owned project theatre based in Fredrikstad.

Performing Arts Østfold was established as Østfold Teaterverksted (literally: Østfold Theatre Workshop) in 1991. The enterprise was based on collaboration between on a national level, county level and municipal level. In 2004, the organisation move from Halden to Fredrikstad, and at the same time, the structure was changed into a fully county-owned enterprise, active in participation between the county and the municipality. The organisation changed its name into Østfold Theatre (Norwegian: Østfold Teater) at the time of its tenth anniversary in 2001, and in 2013 it changed its name anew, into Performing Arts Østfold (Norwegian: Scenekunst Østfold).

Kjell Susegg Moberg took over as Performing Arts Østfold's head in 2013, after Ida M. Frederiksen had led the institution for 20 years.
